former concentration camp buildings in Brnenec

The Czech Culture Ministry has granted the cultural heritage status to the former concentration camp buildings in Brnenec, a locality known from Steven Spielberg's film Schindler's List, a story of Oskar Schindler (1908-1974), an entrepreneur who saved more than 1,000 Jews, mainly Polish, during World War Two by employing them in his factory in Brnenec. The Czech Endowment Fund Memorial of Shoah and Oskar Schindler wants to turn the former factory and concentration camp into a memorial to the Holocaust victims. The current owner of the complex has reportedly promised to provide a part of it for the fund and the local self-rule authority also supports the project. Brnenec, Czech Republic, December 29, 2016.
